NEW DENSITY: Illustration shows subdivision plat overlayed on existing look of area.
Leslie Newell Peacock reports
in our print edition this week about the pitched battle by neighbors to oppose a 266-home subdivision in Fletcher Hollow along Kanis Road west of the city limits.
The neighbors fear ridge cuts, storm water runoff, deviations from development rules and, particularly, the use of a subdivision sewage treatment plant to handle waste, because the development can't connect to the city system.
The city has planning jurisdiction. The staff is OK with a subdivision, but not with a treatment plant that would have to be maintained by residents.
A big crowd is expected today when the Planning Commission takes up the application.
